Which God?

When we talk about knowing God, we must admit we can know nothing about God except for what He has revealed Himself to be. In other words, we are not at liberty to express or imagine or entertain pet ideas about a God cast in our own preference at the expense of the One who has revealed Himself in Scripture.

Carl F Henry (1913-2003) once wrote, "that if we humans say anything authentic about God, we can do so only on the basis of divine-revelation; all other God-talk is conjectural."

The issues we have with 'identity' and about being 'authentic' may be our way of avoiding the God Who Is in favour of the God Whom I Identify With.
